Police are offering a $12,000 reward for information that leads to the arrest of a suspect involved in the stabbing of two young children in Brooklyn.

Investigators released a photo of the knife used to stab the children inside the elevator of a public housing building on Schenck Avenue in East New York Sunday night.

The knife is manufactured by Dura Lock, and went out of production in 2004.

Six-year-old Prince Joshua Avitto was killed in the attack.


Seven-year-old Mikayla Capers is in critical condition after undergoing surgery.

Witnesses say a man had followed the children into the elevator.

A vigil is behind held tonight near the scene of the crime for the two children.

Sources say there is a strong possibility the attacker is the same man who stabbed to death 18 year old Tanaya Copeland.

That attack happened Friday night on Stanley Avenue, also in East New York.
